In fact, the subconscious mind does not know the difference between an image you see in your mind and an image you see in the physical world. It’s all the same to the brain when you focus ten minutes a day in better health. Using imagery and focused intention contributes 100% to vitality.
Only Ten Minutes a Day
You can have better health, meaning more energy and improving how you feel, by using your imagination. As you increase relaxation responses to lower the stress hormones that keep you on ALERT. You take charge of your energy and brain-body communication through purposeful imagery.
Try This for Better Health Right Now!
It’s a bright and warm Friday afternoon. You left a little early this day to go to your ATM to get some cash for the weekend activities. You check your bank balance to find the astounding sum of one million dollars. All those zeroes flash on the screen. Surprise lights up your eyes. Awestruck, you stare at the screen one more time to make sure its real. Passion wells up and laughter rolls through your body!
Now, hold that feeling. Inhale deeply and keep that feeling, then release your breath. Inhale, hold the feeling, and release. That is how you can improve your finances, your health, or your relationships in ten minutes a day. Right now, let’s create better health.
This exercise is an example of mental imagery—evoking a scene and a feeling–a dynamic combination. When you merge images and feelings that work for you, you can direct your energy and empower your results.
Better Health Needs Your Focused Awareness
Mental imagery makes you aware of your energy. You then can choose how to direct it towards an intention.
Your intention is a requirement, the purpose for your spending ten minutes a day to better health. Intention focuses on the result you want: reduce stress, increase good feelings; disappear anger and be calm; focus on peace and banish negative thinking.
Listen to the audio of the imagery. Another option is to listen to the Cosmic Waltz music that expands your energy and automatically entrains your nervous system to relax and create the scene mentally to merge.
While within the imagery, strengthen the emotional association to better health and wellness through the inhale, hold the feeling, and then exhale gently.
Think of an image as a powerful emitter of your message to your environment. For example, you focus on one picture that supports your intention of joy—you are smiling, children laughing, ocean waves caressing the shore. You broadcast this image out into the world. Like any emission of energy, it will spread itself around, and your magnetic field will resonate with it.
So the question to ponder is: What do you want to send out through your energy field that resonates? What healthy image do you want to empower?
“Imagery is a very powerful psychological tool which can be used to enhance self-esteem, expanded awareness, facilitate psychological growth and integration, evoke inner wisdom, increase empathy, expand creativity, increase memory, facilitate optimal performance, evoke a more positive attitude, and accelerate the learning of subject matter.”
-Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
Strengthen The Emotional Bond to Better Health
Imagery is the ability to visualize or mentally create pictures and feelings. Thoughts and feelings are not separate from each other. Thoughts are the emotional association, biochemical response in your body. A feeling or sensation triggers a corresponding chemical response in the brain. Imagery empowers your awareness and directs your body to better health and wellness.
Mindbody science has shown us that thinking about running a race triggers the same physical feelings as the act of running. Apparently running the race gives you the happiness, physical exercise, and tension release. Imagining that you feel vibrant and radiate optimism is the real dynamic to better health.
Lynn Joseph, Ph.D., a professional speaker and founder of Discovery Dynamics, calls “guided imagery a thought process that directs and focuses the imagination and involves the body, the emotions, and all the senses: vision, audition, smell, taste, and touch. Even if your absolute sense is not visual, you can still use guided imagery effectively by feeling deeply and sensing acutely.”
Imagery is YOUR powerful language of the subconscious. By choosing your images, you can program your subconscious mind for better health and wellness.

Your Healthy Heart
Traditional medicine examines sick people and works hard to help fix them what is wrong. Natural medicine examines the principles embodied in healthy people and learns from them. First, you learn that happier people are generally healthier and have healthier hearts. They create more abundance, have better relationships, and enjoy better health.
The opposite is also true. Healthier people have more energy with which to create abundance, participate in life, and enjoy the company of other people. The cycle of health feeds itself to keep you feeling energetic and renewed regardless of physical age.
The healthy heart is much more than a pump. The heart is at the center of your body and the core of your very being. Did you know that your heart produces and radiates ten times the electromagnetic field of any other organ in your body? This is important for you to know because after all, you are an energetic being.
The energy knowledge of quantum physics, invisible particles, and non-linear dynamics have essential information for all who value their health. The latest sciences of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), psychobiology and neurobehavior reveal how all parts of the mind-body system are interconnected and in constant communication.
The Mind-Body System
Because each part of your whole mind-body system is interconnected, what benefits your heart health automatically helps your overall health. A heart-healthy approach to daily living staves off heart disease and other physical ailments, as well as the perhaps more elusive but equally significant ailments of the mind. Whole heart-healthy living can reduce depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
Knowing how the organs, cells, and molecules communicate enables you to stimulate powerful healing responses within your mind-body. Then, taking self-loving action, you feel better in increments. People notice that you look and act younger. Your mood improves. You have the energy for all that you want to do.
Take Responsibility for your Healthy Heart
How, exactly, do you go about taking responsibility? By becoming informed and by taking action to suit your personal circumstances. As the timeless saying goes, “Knowledge is power.” The more you know, the more you empower yourself to make heart-healthy decisions.
Feeling wealthy and blessed was a spiritual message by Napoleon Hill which has influenced people for decades. The famous author revealed the secrets of wealth in his 1937 classic Think and Grow Rich through:
Hill understood that thoughts are energy, and he put this understanding into practice. Throughout his book, he indicated that to acquire wealth, you must work with your power of thought, accompanied by positive emotional desiresand persistent effort.
Now, leap into the Information Age and update Hill’s classic strategies with the science of the mind and body, called psychoneuroimmunology or PNI. This science and research of the human mind and body demonstrates the interactions between psychological processes, the nervous system, and the immune systems.. The new brain science with functional neuro-mapping through MRIs shows precisely where and how the brain corresponds to your feelings and thoughts and vice versa. The mind and emotions are not separate. Nature intended that the mind and body systems work in harmony for you to have the kind of life you desire and deserve.
The latest science presents the mind and body as one dynamic process of energy. Thoughts are energetic impulses. Emotions are energies providing feedback. Intuition is that hunch or gut feeling. When your inner spirit wants to get your attention, how do you become aware?
“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill
Have A Life Rich In Spirituality
A joyful life is a rich one. Indeed, the definition of rich has changed radically with the introduction of mind-body medicine and the public’s deepened interest in spirituality and longing for deepest joy. Some people interpret rich as being healthy and living in an environment where pollutants are not rampant. Another person considers rich to be accumulated material wealth. Still others consider rich to be living their spirituality beyond beliefs or attitudes. In other words, they recognize that they are spiritual beings having the human experience.
As larger numbers of people acquire a surplus of money at younger ages, there is a sociological trend toward seeking satisfaction of a spiritual nature. They yearn for an enriched life, which includes good health, harmony, longevity, and spirituality.
Being “rich” then becomes a spiritual deepening of our hearts, in addition to the material wealth we wish to accumulate. Just as health is more than an absence of disease, wealth is more than material accumulation. Spiritual wealth includes joyful emotions and optimal mental states as well.
“When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve others, and when you make this the central focus of your life, you will then be in a position to know true miracles in your progress toward prosperity.” ~ Wayne W. Dyer
